"Obviously I'd wear a full Balenciaga tracksuit that says "Simone" on it bedazzled in jewels." - Simone Tuffy

Simone Tuffy was one of the first people I met at college. I audition for the dance company she was in, I got in and straight away we bonded. We bonded over being British, being journalism majors and our sense of humours aligned perfectly.

Simone now lives in Los Angeles, and we don’t talk as much as I would like, but she is someone I look up to and is constantly inspiring me.

A year ago, in Boston, I took these photographs of her in her apartment for my first darkroom photography class.


Money, education and reality don’t matter, what is your life goal and why?
My life goal is to use everything I've learned at communications school and use it to change the world. I don't know how I will do this yet, but I am someone who wants to spread positivity in any way I can. Fashion and photography have always been my favorite ways of expressing myself in a positive way.


More realistic goal for the next five years?
Hopefully to have a consistent job in the fashion or entertainment world. And to live somewhere that makes me feel the best version of myself.

What advice would you give your 15 year old self?
I would tell my 15 year old self to do your homework more often in college and to be more organized.



Favourite outfit?
I usually like to wear a lot of black. I'd say my favorite outfit is a black leather skirt with tights and a turtleneck during the fall or winter, with black boots. I also love sneakers and sweatshirts and just being comfortable.



What do you look for in a friend?
In a friend I look for someone who is honest and kind, supportive no matter what. And also someone who is fun and can challenge me intellectually.



Favourite beauty products?
Mac matte lipstick. My favorite colors are "Mehr" and "Pink Plaid". I also can't live without my eyebrow pencil, and my new Kim Kardashian "Crystal Gardenia" perfume is my favorite thing ever.

Favourite place you’ve travelled?
My favorite place I've ever travelled is probably Greece. It felt like I was in a dream.



Dream trip?
I want to go to Asia so badly. Just to see the difference in culture, eat the food, and see the beautiful scenery there. I also would love to travel to other sports of the US I haven't been yet, like Seattle and Portland.



Favourite qualities about yourself?
I think my favorite qualities about myself are things that have developed more so in the past few years. I have a lot of strength in terms of knowing who I am, what I want, and who I want to surround myself with. I don't tolerate any negativity and if I'm ever sensing that someone is bringing me down I will quickly get rid of that. I like to be surrounded constantly with positivity. And I believe that I spread that with those who surround themselves with me as well.

What outfit would you wear for an event honouring Y O U ?
Oooooo I love this question!! Obviously I'd wear a full Balenciaga tracksuit that says "Simone" on it bedazzled in jewels. Can you throw me an event like this? Thank you.
